Hat Progress

This is the progress so far on the baby hat to match the sweater with the American flag theme. I think it’s too BIG! at a 16″ circumference. Oh well, I have decided to finish it and then make the next smallest size (14″) and give the mom both hats!

Hat to match 'Sweater with Star'

Today I was blog-surfing and saw this top! I can hardly contain myself with all of the great summer tops I’m finding. This is the “Lacy Swing Top” that appeared in Crochet Today August 2007 issue. It calls for 4 skeins of cotton using a size E hook. I am putting it on ‘my list’ and intend to make it in dark purple.

That swing top is so pretty. It will look great in purple.

I find it a challenge to knit the right size hat for a baby in our climate, because the window of opportunity to actually wear a knitted hat is so narrow. Giving two sizes will probably end up being a good thing.

Babies grow very fast, the bigger one can be used few months later! Beautiful lace top!!

Now, I’m really feeling this one. It’s on my to-do list.

I’m sure both those hats will get some really good use. That top is gorgeous! I can’t wait to see it in purple! 🙂

    I've been knitting & crocheting many years, and it is great to see the rise in popularity. Basically,the loves of my life include: knitting, crocheting, being with my family and giving thanks to God for how He's blessed my life, but not necessarily in that order!
